I will spend the next few weeks previewing teams before they head to camp in August. If you are a coach and haven’t done so already, e-mail a preview of your team to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Coach: Steve Yurek
2014 record: 3-6; did not qualify for Class C playoffs (moving up to Class B)
Key returning players:
Phil “Tarzan” DaSilva, Jr., FB/LB
Louis Barge, Jr., WR/LB
Joe Diaz, Sr., OT/LB
Ky’shyne Simpmon, So., QB/S
Juan Carlos “Chief” Garcia, So., G/NT
Facts to know: Simpmon became the starting quarterback at midseason as a 13-year-old freshman. He and Garcia both started as freshmen. They are among the 30-plus underclassmen expected to be on this year’s roster. Despite the youth, YMA expects to have over 40 players opening day — a soaring total for the only Yonkers football program remaining in Section 1.
